is one of the least known breeds of dog in the United States, even though it is the state dog of North Carolina. The Plott Hound is a large scent hound, originally bred for hunting boar. (Submitted on November 14, 2017, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.) 

2. Plott Dog Breed Information. Powerful and well-muscled, the Plott brings big game such as bear or boar to bay or tree with its determination, endurance and courage. Today, the Plott - who is the state dog of North Carolina - is also used for coonhunting in addition to his more traditional duties. The breed's smooth, glossy coat can be any shade of brindle (a streaked or striped pattern of dark hair imposed on a lighter background), solid black or have a saddle or markings.
